“Timesnatching isn’t exactly rocket science,” said the Commander.
Jack looked up and frowned. “It is where I come from.”
Three teens are flung twenty years into the future where time coins and bohrium bracelets can mean the difference between life and death. Thrown together in a dystopian New York City, an American farm boy, English school girl and teen scientist will have to quickly unite and join the Coalition of Liberty. The girl’s quiet life along Wigan’s Pier is behind her and she is now faced with trusting the daring young American and the geek kid who can almost invent something from nothing. The boys will either save them all from this strange turn of events or they’ll plunge them even deeper into a frightening world of oppressive dictators, rebel forces and teenagers who are kidnapped for their future talents.

I didn't know what to expect when got this book, I purchased it on a whim without knowing what it was about. I'm glad I did, it was an enjoyable read. I didn't ever feel like the author was pushing me along or forcing the story. It flowed very naturally and more importantly, captured my imagination quickly. I don't want to give away any plot details but I was intrigued by B.D. Boyle's concept of the future and of time travel. There are lots of time travel books out there, but she's put an interesting spin on it. My favorite character is Eli, there's a mystery about who he is, where he's from and what he can really do. And I really want those answers! I didn't know that this was the first in a (to-be) series so I was caught off guard by the cliff-hanger at the end but I'm excited to see where B.D. Boyle is going to take this story in the next installment. She's definitely piqued my interest!
